Boy, Did I Call This One?

More is coming out about the non-connection between American Renaissance and the Tucson shooter Jared Loughner. It shows I nailed this one (forgive the violent imagery.) (Special thanks to Patrick Cleburne of VDare.)
David Denlinger, commander of the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center acknowledged that the document came from his agency, but contained errors and overstated the link between Jared Loughner, the 22-year-old charged with shooting Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others outside a Tucson supermarket, and American Renaissance...

The document - which Denlinger described as an email "one of the detectives in the center authored ... to his supervisor ... just simply mentioning the brainstorming" - asserted that there is "strong suspicion" of a connection between Loughner and American Renaissance.

But even the limited-modified walkback by the AcTIC still left the implication that there was a connection between American Renaissance and Loughner.
...but contained errors and overstated the link between Jared Loughner, the 22-year-old charged with shooting Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others outside a Tucson supermarket, and American Renaissance.

"I do have no reason to believe in anything that we did that (Loughner) had any direct connection or was being directed by American Renaissance," Denlinger, an Arizona state police major, told POLITICO Tuesday.
Of course we know that there is no link to overstate nor any indirect connection between American Renaissance and Loughner.
Even the FBI refuses to admit its mistake.
On Sunday afternoon, when FBI Director Robert Mueller was asked about the possible link during a press conference in Tucson, he responded "I have seen some allusion to that in the media, let me just put it that way. Quite clearly, that is something that we would continue to look at and focus on in the course of the investigation."
Mueller should have known better than to comment on something he obviously knew nothing about.. or he did know better and said it anyway.
But Denlinger is obviously lying about his knowledge of the origin of the alleged connection with American Rennaisance:
He said he doesn't remember what made his detectives draw the connection between Loughner and American Renaissance and, he conceded that the document erred in labeling American Renaissance anti-Semitic, which formed the basis for its suggestion that Loughner may have targeted Giffords because of her religion.
Someone needs to put Denlinger on the box as is said in the business. The box being a polygraph. It is clear that Denlinger was told the reasoning behind the American Renaissance link, but he just doesn't want to tell. Is it because it was a deliberate fabrication as part of a political vendetta or is Denlinger's detective who authored the email just what I described as a stupid flatfoot? It could be both aren't too bright and for that reason are at the AcTIC. Or is Denlinger and/or his detective another Tom Gerard?
But, as I said, the fusion centers just make shit up and that is what this poor performing detective did. He just made it up out of thin air. There is nothing connecting American Renaissance to Loughner. Nothing, zero, zip, zilch. Either mendacity or stupidity, or a combination of both. The banality of evil. I hope Jared Taylor gets a good attorney. The depositions in this case will make for amazing reading; exposing how politically directed "homeland security" really is, to the detriment of real security. We surely live in a law enforcement world of morons or those with Stalinist tendencies.
